The Comanche Chief, Comanche, Texas, 4 June 1881

Half Sheet

Unavoidable circumstances compel the Chief to issue this week on a half sheet. A disagreement between the proprietors, resulting in a personal difficulty, caused the office to close for three days, thereby rendering it impossible to get out the paper. But, thanks to the Almighty, we have rid ourselves of partners, and the Chief will in future be run and controlled by Joe W. HILL as editor and proprietor without the "Co." attachment; or, if we do have a "Co." it will be one of our own selection and not a second-hand forced upon us without our knowledge and consent, as was the case in the recent co-partnership……..
